Meaningful May

The Meaningful May Calendar is from the folks at Action for Happiness, who say:
This month's theme is all about reflecting on what gives our life meaning.  Being a part of something bigger than ourselves and focusing on things that we value is key to our wellbeing.  So let's take time to reflect on what we care about this month and keep these things at the front of our minds as our societies begin to open up again.
